“Trisha is the ideal person to provide technical and strategic support for our clients within the National Laboratories and broader federal R&D ecosystem,” said Charles Rath, RS21 President and CEO. “She is a creative problem-solver, accomplished scientist, and exceptional leader in building and maintaining relationships with our nation’s leading scientists to address complex challenges.”

In her position at RS21, Miller will work with leadership to establish a new division specifically focused on supporting research and development (R&D) at national laboratories and federally funded R&D centers.

“There are a lot of potential opportunities for RS21 to provide capabilities in data science, data engineering, software development, and human-centered design that complement the deep technical research happening at national laboratories and across the federal R&D complex,” said Miller. “By establishing this new division, we will be able to cultivate and maintain a consistent team of analysts and developers with skills and expertise that enhance the ongoing and unique research of our lab and government partners.”

RS21 works with national laboratories to build and mature innovative big data analytics platforms and visualization tools to support decision-making. For example, RS21 partnered with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to develop a prototype for smart meter technology to allow scientists and utilities to better understand how to improve grid resiliency. RS21 will continue to focus on supporting research and development efforts by bridging the gap between lab-based analytics tools and user-centric products that provide intuitive insights in operational environments.
